plus size

Melissa McCarthy is launching her new clothing line and doing away with the plus size label because she says “women come in all sizes. See full article from CNN.

I love this idea because recently I had to purchase a few items for a trip and I had to go to three stores before I found one that carried my clothing size. I was really dismayed when I saw what styles and inventory was available. It was ridiculous at the lack of design. Then came my next problem, everything was twice as expensive as smaller sizes. Don’t all women deserve the same access to clothing?

Some small minded people say, “ Just lose weight!”.  But there are some of us that because of physical issues or medication have gained the weight and it is difficult lose.  This Plus size labels issue feels like we singled out to be a size that society will accept.  We are the ones that can’t run to the store and just pick something off of the regular rack. Does that make us less than in some way?

I am a single parent of three wonderful children. Two boys who are grown and live out on their own and a teenage daughter at home. I have gone through a lot of drama with divorce and sickness- just to start, but have found my way out of the shadows and I am ready to motivate and empower women with what I have learned. Being unqualified is exactly what makes me qualified. I work full time in the corporate world, I'm a parent, and I resell products on several different online platforms. Last, but the most important, I am a Christ follower at Church By The Glades.
